BUFFALO, N.Y. - Sophomore Steve McJannet scored with 1:33 remaining in overtime Saturday to give the Lake Superior State hockey team a 3-2 victory over Canisius and end the Lakers' three-game string of ties with the Golden Griffins.

LSSU (1-0-1) came back from a 2-0 first-period deficit to defeat Canisius (0-2-2). Sophomore Nathan Ward cut the lead to 2-1 with a power-play goal at 16:57 of the second period, and freshman Trent Campbell tied it at 19:16 of the third.

Sophomore Jon Booras assisted on both of LSSU's regulation goals. Sophomore Kory Scoran drew an assist on Campbell's goal, while McJannet's goal was unassisted.

LSSU, which also came from behind to tie Canisius 1-1 on Friday, successfully pulled the goalie in favor of an extra attacker in both games of this year's series. The Lakers also out-shot Canisius in both games, building a 30-21 advantage on Saturday and dominating 70-39 for the weekend.
